News today was announced that Britney Spears and her ex-mate, Kevin Federline have agreed to a custody agreement that is going before the court, for a judge’s signature to become official. Kevin Federline will get sole custody of the two boys that he and Britney had together; Jayden James and his older brother Sean Preston, once that document is signed by court officials.
Britney Spears continues to receive visitation; which at this point, according to media reports, includes one, over-night visitation and a couple of visits per week. Britney has had a rough time physically and emotionally over the last year or two; since her divorce.
Britney had very public outbursts and was hospitalized twice, involuntarily. She has been doing remarkably well since her father Jaime took over a conservatorship many months ago. He was successful in removing some negative influences by having the court’s approval in deciding who could be physically present around Britney. She has had more stabilized public appearances and has even been productive professionally. She has appeared on television in a couple of acting roles and she has been getting back to her music. This, after a much publicized effort to get back into shape physically by working out.
All of those accomplishments have allowed the courts to reward her efforts, to get her life back on track, by increasing her time with her boys; after having stopped visitations previously. It is crucial for Kevin Federline and those in the court system to continue to see Britney Spears’ improvements in areas of concern that affect her children and herself. Working on the relationships in their family is wise and will be to the benefit of the children as well as the adults involved.
If things continue to stablize in her life; the court could always increase her visitation time with her children. This agreement by the parents shows their ability to put their children’s needs ahead of their own desire for control. Well done!
